If you don't, he will want to do it but be too scared to do it. There is no science behind it, it's just better looking and a cultural norm here amongst white people in the United States. It's easier maintenance, there is no pulling anything back you just clean it the same way you clean your thumb.
My husband was a star football player, lettered in track, is white, and uncircumcised, and was not ridiculed. I am also white and his "turtleneck" did not turn me off. So please speak for yourself.

Have you asked your vet to circumcise your male pet because you can't stand what nature has provided? I get the feeling you are making up a lot of stuff in your posts to justify some personal agenda. LOL.

My mother was a nurse, who saw men who had to be circumcised as adults, due to one reason or another. She said they seemed to feel significant discomfort afterwards.

Circumcision increases the chance of meatitis (inflammation of the opening of the penis).
Circumcision may result in a decreased incidence of urinary tract infections.
Circumcision may result in a lower incidence of sexually transmitted diseases and may reduce HIV transmission.
Circumcision may lower the risk for cancer of the cervix in sexual partners.
Circumcision may decrease the risk for cancer of the penis.
There may be rare cases when it is necessary to circumcise the male penis because the foreskin is too constricted and does not retract sufficiently, but that is the rare case indeed.

Some food for thought: All male mammals with a penis have a natural sheath that protects the penis just like men have. Many of these animals are built low to the ground, uncovered without garments, and sit and roll on the ground frequently. How often do they get infections in their penis? It is extremely, extremely rare. I've had a lot of pets in my life and that has never been the case. And the females do not get cervical cancer because of uncirc penises. Lol!!

Now if you want to talk about people, it is primarily done either for religious or cultural reasons, to identify members of a particular culture. That's why it's done. All these other reasons that they try to sell us on are things that the pro-circ group are reaching for..... to make it sound like there's a scientific basis for their cutting.

In some cultures they cut different things also...... for identity purposes mainly.

Huh? I just think it's gross. Humans are not dogs but yes my dog has his balls chopped off so he doesn't reproduce.

Did you know that humans are mammals..... just like dogs? Sorry if that offends you. The penis serves the same functions in both cases.... for excreting liquid wastes and for internal fertilization.

Btw, we were talking about the penis not the testes (aka balls). But since you brought that up, yes, that's done to control reproduction. The circ'd penis, unless it's a rare emergency, is done for adornment mainly. It's a thing done by religious and cultural groups.

I am talking about little boys today, the upcoming generation. About half of them are circumcised, the other half aren't, so when they are grown the mix will be common. Your generation is probably one of the last where the majority of boys are.

From reading the responses, I still feel very confident in our decision .

You should probably stop looking at other men's junk if it bothers you so much.

If you're in a locker room it's kind of hard not to see, also in any adult movie. It's just gross.
